    Soon all forms of "driving" will be nostalgic (rather than "riding").  Does that mean we should only care about the "riding" experience in the future?

    It sounds like it was the car of the year winner, and then Evo has another competition for performance car of the year, right?  My money is on 675LT for the latter.

    We're at the point where you can be the fastest or just sound like you're the fastest.

    Two seater, not convertible, no interest...

    Re: Cayman GT4

    Bluelines and any other GT4 owners,

    Did you go for clear film protection?  I am considering it, though generally I hate the look and feel of it.  Found an installer that wraps the edges of the panel so at least you cannot see the edges of the film.  Some people say Porsche paint is very soft and chips easily.

    Congrats GT4 owners. Evo car of they ear beating out a very strong field:

    991 GT3 eCoty 2013

    981 GT4 eCoty 2015

    It makes waiting hard (unless you already have a GT3 or RS I suppose).

    Unfortunately, modern Porsche paint is water-based and much less resilient than the stuff made with nasty solvents from years ago.  If you track or live in an area where debris on the roads is common, then it's a good idea to get Xpel or similar.  Unless you don't mind just respraying the damaged areas later (some prefer this approach).

    I did not go for clear film protection, but maybe I should have. However, one added benefit, on top of being the fastest color, is that the stone chips don't stick out so much on a white car Smiley 

    I had the front of the C4S resprayed. It had countless small white stone chips. Very visible on this color.

    Nice review from a real dude, Salomon Drin. If you don't know who he is, google...

    He owns a few very nice cars (918, 991 RS, Huayra) and if he had to sell them all and one keep one... yes, you guessed it

    because of the cupholders?

    I didn't find this review serious...On another topic I doubt if he can drive a yellow car that often...


    Re: Cayman GT4

    I guess this depends on how you define serious  I, at least, found the review refreshing since he is a "normal" dude who owns sport cars and not just the average auto journalist burping up the usual numbers and figures...

    Miss Switzerland? Hmm imagine Grant in a nice bikini.


    Re: Cayman GT4

    Very tight result, it all comes down to one of the judges positioning the LT as fourth. The rest, all had the GT4 and LT first or second. The outlier killed the LT.

    Shouldn't the GT3 RS win ecoty 2015 ? or they couldn't figure out why it only had 2 pedals instead of 3 ? smiley
